Description

Andrea Tsang Jackson guides readers through transforming the beauty, allure, and power of natural stones into glittering complex patchwork quilts. Using her expert tips and tricks and her step-by-step process to master a plan for the colour work required to achieve transparency and light through fabric selection, readers will paper-piece their way to a jewellery box of blocks. Beginning with nine traditional gemstone shapes, such as teardrop, marquis, and emerald cuts, each block progresses in complexity so readers can hone their skills as they work their way through the book. Next, quilters will be inspired to use their blocks in a series of projects both large and small. Created with intermediate quilters in mind, the book includes:

  • A beginner-friendly workshop on achieving effective transparency with fabric
  • Andrea Tsang Jackson's speedy chain-piecing technique for paper piecing
  • Nine basic 12'' gemstone blocks
  • Graded patterns to create the perfect finished block size
  • Traditional and modern settings
  • Cutting and faceting with fabric workshop
  • Gemstone groups with sampler ideas
  • Field Guide approach with watercolour illustrations of gemstones
